For those of you who deliver the night before a sale, what is an acceptable time frame to you for your calves to be run through the ring the next day? Sale starts at 10:30am. Trying to beat the heat I delivered some to a sale at 10pm, they still hadn't gone through the the ring at 4pm the next day. Is this to long given the fact that they had no access to water the entire time and its been unusually hot? They looked terrible compared to the condition they were in when delivered. I usually sell off the farm, haven't taken calves in for quite a few years.
